What is this? ... Windows Update: Graphics Adapter WDDM update
I already have the latest NVIDIA driver installed on my Windows 7 x64 for my GeForce GTX 660 Ti. But I got this item in my Windows Update list. Is this something different from NVIDIA drivers--and therefore I should install it? Or should I hide this update and ignore it?

Agreed, I would hide it. Microsoft update is somewhat problematic, in that it could have you "update" to drivers older than the ones you currently have installed.. Then there is also the issue that jaafaman pointed out which is different than what I just described.

driver have bugs, but this is not one of them. Now go fix it already." -fgiesen
